Oh man summer is here and now all I can think about is December because the STAR WARS: Rougue One sizzle reel/Poster just released and wow do they look awesome!
Rogue One is set to be something really unique just because it’s the first film that takes place outside of the main “Episodes” and by what we’ve seen so far this could be the best STAR WARS film yet! you can check out the sizzle reel below and the new Poster up above. MAY THE FORCE BE WITH US!!!!
Finally started up our own podcast!
If you are looking for a podcast with cheesy music intros and fake advertisements and are tired of listening to professional sounding people who actually know what they’re talking about then I have a podcast for you!!
Come join Caliph Ford, Ramon Rodriguez and myself as we discuss all types of nerd things like Star Wars, the DC Universe and much more.
Just yesterday I remember thinking how cool it was that we had finally reached 2015. After a year of seeing how we didn’t have real hover boards or pretty much anything back to the future 2 promised I was almost happy to see 2015 hit my rearview. The year wasn’t all bad (We did get an amazing new STAR WARS movie!!) but overall I’m looking forward to 2016 a lot more.
I’ve pretty much been in hibernation mode since mid December due to my kids and wife being home for break and getting smacked with a cold that I’m still not quite over yet. Also me spending my free time watching and re-watching THE FORCE AWAKENS took some time.
Nonethless, I hope you all had a great start to 2016 and I look forward to spending some fun times in 2016 with all of you.
I recently had the opportunity to check out a fantastic service for young readers called PUT ME IN THE STORY. The concept is that parents can visit http://www.PutMeInTheStory.com and after navigating a very easy to use system, they can create a personalized story books for their children starring some of the coolest licensed characters that kids know and love.
To my 3 yr old son’s (and my own) happiness, the great folks over at PUT ME IN THE STORY allowed me to make him two of their STAR WARS books which have gone on to become a part of his daily life. The two stories, STAR WARS: THE FORCE INSIDE and STAR WARS REBELS: BATTLE PLANS FROM DARTH VADER are awesome books for young fans of the series and both are fun way for them to learn more about their favorite heroes and villains while also seeing how and where they would fit into the STAR WARS universe.
Though my 3yr old is still currently in the process of learning exactly how to read, it in no way stops his passion for enjoying story time and having fun with some of his favorite books. Thankfully having the added option of him being able to see himself and his name included on the same pages as many of his favorite STAR WARS characters made him absolutely crazy for both books and he is constantly asking me to re-read them both to him and help him take the quizzes that determine if he leans more the the lighted or the dark. Currently he is way to happy about being a Sith….His mother and I are working on that one.
I can’t say enough good things about the PUT ME IN THE STORY books as they are a fun personalized way to share the joy of reading with your children at any age. In a time when toy prices have skyrocketed and every video game comes with costly DLC add ons that can run a parent into spending hundreds of dollars it’s nice to see a truly unique gift be available for a decent price. Each book will run you $29.99 – $39.99 but that does include all of the customization. On top of that PUT ME IN THE STORY also provided me with a special promo code to share that can be used right now that will give you half off any of the personalized STAR WARS books.
If you have kids who are STAR WARS fans, this is a no brainer and an absolutely wonderful way to give your kids a special gift that goes way beyond the usually toys or games.

I’ve watched the new trailer for BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE several times at this point and all I can think is “why did they not end it 30 seconds earlier?”
The new look at the highly anticipated film does everything right in preparing us for this follow up to MAN OF STEEL and is the first true venture into seeing the larger DC Universe come to life on the big screen but as the trailer builds cut to a final 30 seconds where it seems like the trailer and possibly the plot of this film “goes off the rails”.
After seeing the introductions of Superman, Batman and Lex Luthor we are given some hints of Lex manipulating the two and are off and running with the idea that we’ll be watching an awesome film pitting these two heroes against each other before they eventually make peace and set up what will be a series of Justice League films. This trailer does a great job of setting up that premise but then out of nowhere the final 30 seconds or so are a weird jump to what one can only assume is the final act of the film that sees Lex Luthor (doing his best Dr. Frankenstein impression) creating Doomsday as Wonder Women appears out of nowhere to save our heroes (who are apparently friends now?) and join by their side.
I honestly have no idea how the movie studio deemed it necessary to throw all of that storyline into one trailer for a film that releases in a few short months anyway. Besides seeming rushed and out of place the final 30 seconds of the trailer gave the film a panicked “SPIDER-MAN 3” feel of random characters and too much going on. I honestly want to still believe that in the end BATMAN V SUPERMAN will turn out to be a great film but unfortunately after this trailer, or at least the final 30 seconds of it os giving me a bad feeling about this whole thing.
